Six people charged in Donegal as part of Operation Thor

An 18 year old has been charged and has appeared in court in Donegal as part of Operation Thor.


A further five people are due to appear in court this morning in the county as it relates to the investigation.


The initiative is designed to tackle the anticipated increase in the number of burglaries and associated criminal activity that usually occur in winter months.


As part of the operation, Gardaí attached to Letterkenny carried out a number of search operations across Donegal and arrested six people yesterday morning.


During the operation, four properties were searched under warrants and six people –  three men and three women, ages ranging from late teens to early 40s –  were arrested.


A number of mobile phones and documents  and a small amount of cash were seized.


An 18 year old was charged in relation to the operation and brought before Letterkenny District Court yesterday and was released on bail.


Five people were detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at different Garda stations in Donegal.


They have all since been charged and are due to appear before Letterkenny District Court this morning.


Gardai say that their investigations are ongoing.
